Lessons from Gandhi

/ 09:47 PM December 07, 2012

Mahatma Gandhi’s thoughts and teachings remain relevant and significant to this day. Here are some of them:

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”


“Whenever you have truth, it must be given with love, or the message and the messenger will be rejected.”

“An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

“The earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s need, but not every man’s greed.”

“Here are the roots of violence: Wealth without work, pleasure without conscience, knowledge without character, business without morality, science without humanity, worship without sacrifice, and politics without principles.”


“An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it.”

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”

“They cannot take away our self-respect if we do not give it to them.”


“You may never know what results come out of your action, but if you do nothing, there’ll be no result at all!”

“A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it’s the prerogative of the brave.”

“When I admire the wonder of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in worship of the Creator.”
